Eshleman Bible Page
This page was separated from the Bible, so the
date of the Bible is unknown.
Martin and Elizabeth Eshleman are found in Providence,
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in the 1880 US Census.
The birth dates here correspond with the ages there -- Martin
being 56 and Elizabeth being 64. Both were born in PA as
were all four of their parents.
The LDS site has a GEDCOM listing Martin Eshleman with this
birth date as the son of Jacob Eshleman and Ann Groff. Perhaps
he was related in some way to Elizabeth -- Jacob had a brother
named John. To confuse matters even more, This GEDCOM
lists Jacob's father and mother as: Martin Eshleman and Elizabeth
Groff. Yes, another pair of them.
